By majoring in Chemistry, you will explore the study of change in matter, molecules and chemical reactions. The Chemistry program at Armstrong will provide you with a solid academic foundation and an emphasis on the skills necessary for problem solving. You will gain hands-on experience while studying the chemical basis for organisms and matter at a molecular level. The Bachelor of Science degree offers you certification from the American Chemical Society, which requires additional course work and an advanced research project.
